Srinagar, Apr 1: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) organized Blood Donation Camp at Hamid Blood Bank, Abi Guzar, here in memory of the Dr Abdul Ahad Guroo on his 19th martyrdom anniversary observed on Friday, a JKLF spokesman said.
Besides JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and other leaders and activists, scores of people including deceased’s son Khalid Ahmad, journalists, doctors, engineers, students and traders donated their blood at the camp.
Speaking on the occasion, Malik said such great personalities rarely take birth in a nation. “Dr Guroo, by virtue of his efforts and struggle, had written a new chapter in every field of life. He was counted one among a few prominent cardiologists of world. He had opened free clinics at different places in Valley for poor people. He had also set up a free X-ray centre and built an inn and a mosque for patients and attendants near Bone and Joint Hospital, Barzulla, here. He had worked hard for the development of SKIMS, Soura and JVC hospital,” he said.
“Dr Guroo was basic policy maker of JKLF. When mass revolution started in 1990, he led it at diplomatic level. He made the diplomats and ambassadors of various countries aware about Kashmiris’ plight, sufferings, aspirations and sentiment,” said Malik.
